MediSys Corporation's Medical Model Goes Mainstream On NBC's "The Today Show"

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - MediSys Corporation (PINKSHEETS: MDYO) announced today that a feature segment on NBC's Today Show called "Today's Heart Healthy Man" which aired on February 18, 2009, whereby NBC News Chief Medical Editor Doctor Nancy Snyderman unveils that Erectile Dysfunction(ED) is one of the top 5 warning signs of Heart Disease in men. Snyderman states, "Men who present with ED are eighty (80%) percent more likely to have heart disease." This now-mainstream news corroborates the MediSys core diagnostic technology. Doctor Snyderman further states that better than 70% to 89% of sudden cardiac events occur in men with tobacco use, diabetes, physical inactivity, poor nutrition, high blood pressure and balding. These men are at risk by up to 178%. Doctor Snyderman goes on to say, "If a man reports to his doctor that he has trouble getting an erection, his doctor should immediately screen him for circulation and heart problems. Men ages 40 to 49 with ED are twice as likely to get heart disease and younger men should really consider ED as a sign of heart disease."

The segment can be viewed at the Today show's website.

MediSys' CEO Joshua Konigsberg states, "It's really important for men in our society to understand the correlations between ED and other underlying diseases." Now that the mainstream media has announced these findings we hope that men will go to their doctor or a MaxLife Center for Men™ to get evaluated and treated. We have known and proven for over 6 years the direct correlation between ED and other serious life-threatening diseases in men such as heart disease. Our technology helps the doctor to find the exact underlying disease or diseases.
